Private 5G network possible through 3,5 GHz band auction

Digitalization means that data traffic is increasing rapidly in the Netherlands and the construction of new networks such as 5G is essential for companies. This requires radio frequencies, such as the 3,5 GHz band. The Netherlands, where mobile internet is among the best in Europe, has an EU obligation to make this frequency band available as soon as possible for national mobile communication for the purpose of offering 5G technology. The desirable 3,5 GHz band for 5G connections should finally go under the hammer in the Netherlands. The extra space to offer national mobile communication such as 5G everywhere in the Netherlands will become available from 1 December this year.

5G vs Wi-Fi

5G must transcend the limitations of 4G and Wi-Fi. Not as a replacement but as an ideal addition. With 5G, the intelligence is in the network, while with WiFi it must come from the connected devices. In this way, 5G is better able to maintain the connection when you change antennas, which makes 5G connections inherently more stable, faster and also safer because the data is shielded. 5G makes possible what is not yet possible with WiFi and 4G. Think of autonomous devices that have to make a decision in a fraction of a second. Everything that 'moves' benefits from 5G technology.

Together with our partner Capestone we offer a complete Private 4G LTE / 5G portfolio that consists of hardware, network design, installation and service level agreements through our own Network Operation Center.
